ACTOR and adventurer Brian Blessed brought his lively personality and booming voice to the West Yorkshire Society of Chartered Accountants’ Leeds Dinner at the Queen’s Hotel.

The guest speaker was Gerald Russell, president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

He said: “Leeds is one of the great success stories of the UK, and has been one of our great success stories since the Industrial Revolution. It became a centre for the new engineering and today this great industrial city continues to produce goods used all over the UK and all over the world – and is still known for its excellence in engineering.”
